Lost Pet Information:
Looking for a Lost Pet?
You should check the shelter at minimum every other day.
Animals are brought in by Animal Control 24 hours a day.
Go to the "D" building (Quarantine) first. (A staff member will escort you through the building to see if your pet has arrived.)
If you do not see your animal in D, walk the adoption kennels A, B and C.
Notify a staff member immediately if you see your animal so the kennel can be properly tagged with your information. Staff members will give you instructions to follow to reclaim your pet.
If you do not find your pet:
Post your lost pet on
CenTex Lost Pets Hang flyers around your neighborhood.
Place an ad on Craigslist
If you cannot make it to the shelter to look for your pet you can look on the
. Humane Society of Central Texas' website Please note: not ALL animals will show up on the site. It is VERY important to come to the shelter to look for your animal.
